It was real clean, too!

This is a picture of me from about 8 years ago with polish sausage wrapped and attached to the cam cover for a 90 mile trip down to the Chattanooga Aquarium. We had a picnic in the parking lot (planned) and I was the only one with hot food. It worked great!

Several shows like The Bush Tucker Man, In The Wild with Harry Butler, Ask The Leyland Brothers, and so forth have shown the various hosts go fishing and wrap up their catch and stick it under the bonnet of the LandRover's engine bay so that when they stopped again, their meal was piping hot. Normally seasoned with wild fruits and seasonings of the bush and had a vege or two thrown in for good measure too. Now as to whether any of them really did do it, or enjoyed it is anyone's guess!

One of our cooking shows here, Fresh, cooked a piece of barramundi on a shovel over the campfire just the other week. No foil. Just the plain shovel.

I seem to recall an Alton Brown episode where they put food on something hot on a motorcycle. It was on one of the shows (1st season) where he goes from dive to dive LOL

That was Feasting on Asphalt, and they used a contraption that connects to the battery of the vehicle, or to the cigarette lighter. They sell them in truck stops.

Which wouldn't be too hard to do, if you could find a place in your car's engine compartment that got hot enough, steady enough, and had a long enough drive ahead. A temp of 225+ degrees isn't totally beyond speculation.

The only real hard part would be mounting whatever you're cooking in.
